I’m not liking these coincidences. blackSUMMERS’night was supposed to […]

SPEAK Easy – As I sit alone in my four cornered man cave with my Beats by Dre headphones on staring at my DSM-5 book I begin to ponder how Andre Young can openly admit that he has ghost writers yet makes the best rap album of the year. The last few weeks, the internet […]
Moguls for the last 3 weeks we have been on Facebook debating, questioning, and validating the top 20 albums in the history of Hip Hop. It has been a process that not only kept my debating skills sharp, but it has also sent me back to the vault to listen to music I otherwise would […]

So somewhere at some point in time The RZA fooled around and said we may not hear the rarest of rare Wu-Tang Clan albums until 88 years from now. Yep you read that right Moguls….. 88 years from now.

Earlier this week Drake released his short film Jungle, which featured a somber looking Drizzy. And last night he followed up the visuals with the new album/mixtape, If […]
I am so sick of hearing people complain about there being “no good music” out. This is far from the truth. The problem, is that there is too much music to choose from. The over-saturation of music, caused by the internets, has made it either hard to find the specific type of music you like […]
So I’m on Facebook minding my own business and I see this trailer…… Black Messiah. No this ain’t a Black Jesus spin-off. This is a D’Angelo album. Yeah that D’Angelo!!!

I’m not a rapper so how can I possibly discuss anything about the rap world you ask? Here’s how. I’ve been involved in every facet of this rap shit for the last 20 years. I’ve produced, I’ve written, I’ve been an A&R, I’ve deejayed, I’ve promoted, I’ve marketed and blah, blah, blah. Everything I’ve done […]

Just Blaze speaks on the hanging carrot album by Jay Electronica. By the sound of it we may never get this Jay Electronica album. At least not in the next 12 months especially since they said it still needs “minor” tweaking. Shit we will have better luck getting a Andre 3000 song with D’Angelo playing […]
